Grey zones of globalization: reintegrating territories that lack governance
This report appeared on the regardssurlaterre.com website, a leading online publication on sustainable development issues featuring analyses from experts and practitioners from countries all over the world (both developed and developing):
“The “grey zones”, where the central institutions are unsuccessful, and rule is instead provided by alternative micro-authorities,” (Minassian, 2011) represent a key issue of the international governance of globalisation. These zones of political chaos and armed conflict, where growing numbers of the inhabitant populations challenge the right and legitimacy of the central institutions, are an indication of a geopolitical recomposition. Beyond the local and national issues at stake in these regions, grey areas must be seen as a global public issue.
